Video has surfaced of 2016 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump saying that, if he were elected president, he would not ban partial-birth abortion during a 1999 appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

TRUMP: Look, I’m very pro-choice. I hate the concept of abortion. I hate it. I hate everything it stands for. I cringe when I listen to people debating the subject, but you still — I just believe in choice. Again, it might have a little to due with a New York background, because there are some different attitudes in different parts of the country … but again, I am strongly for choice, and yet I hate the concept of abortion. I am pro-choice in every respect, but I just hate it.
